1. If you misquote me, I'll probably not even bother replying.
2. Three infamous misquotes from other people: "Mirror, Mirror, on the wall", "Let them eat cake", "Say Goodnight Gracie...Goodnight, Gracie".
3. Common rules of the internet: If you are losing an Internet argument, three things you can do:
Correct an unimportant spelling mistake in a preceding thread by your Nemesis; Say that their post is "ironic" without saying what the "ironic statement" is.
4. I feel sickened and disgusted that my life has reached such a dead-end and general lack of purpose that I'm making threads talking about threads nobody remembers.

Actually, isn't it "Magic mirror on the wall..."?

Arguing on the internet is just plain stupid.

Cary Grant never said "Judy, Judy, Judy."

Robert Downey Jr. is probably the sexiest Sherlock Holmes EVER, only second to Basil Rathbone. (don't contradict me, you know what I mean)

Nowhere in Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody do they say "Scare a moose, scare a moose." And the song was never titled "Mamma". (stupid people on Limewire, sheesh.)

Here are some "gems" from Last FM:
http://www.last.fm/music/ABBA/_/Daddy+Cool
http://www.last.fm/music/Boney+M./_/I+Will+Survive
http://www.last.fm/music/The+Beatles/_/Happy+Together
http://www.last.fm/music/Michael+Jackson/_/One+Bad+Apple

None of these songs actually exist.

I don't know the first one, but Gloria Gaynor did I Will Survive, The Turtles did Happy Together, and the Osmonds did One Bad Apple, and thank you... now I can't get that stupid song out of my head.

I can tell you've been hurt by that look on your face, girl.
Someone probably threw sand into your happy world.
You need love, but you're afraid that if you give in,
Someone else will come along and sock it to you again.

One bad apple won't spoil the whole bunch girl,
(insert Donny scream)Give me one more chance before you give up on love.
One bad apple don't spoil the whole bunch girl!
(another Donny scream) I don't care what they say, I don't care what you heard!

Yep, that's from memory, and I think the last time I actually heard that song was in 1974.

I should correct myself...These "compositions" exist, but on these pages have been credited to the wrong artists.

Nice job with the lyrics. I have that song filed in the back of my mind in a folder called "Bad 70s bubblegum" right next to The Partridge Family's "I think I love you".

Now for the real test:

Can you do "Paper Roses"?

Oh yes... I had that Marie Osmond album. It was through her that I discovered Patsy Cline. (not that patsy did paper roses, though... I don't think she did)

I realized the way your eyes deceived me
with tender looks that I mistook for love
So take away the flowers that you gave me
and send the kind that you remind me of
paper roses, paper roses
oh how real those roses seem to be
but they're only imitation,
like your imitation love for me
I thought that you would be a perfect lover
You seemed so full of sweetness at the start
But like a big red rose that's made of paper
There isn't any sweetness in your heart
paper roses, paper roses
Oh how real those roses seem to be
But they're only imitation like you imitation love for me
